Buccaneers running back Doug Martin‘s four-game suspension came to a slightly delayed end after Sunday’s victory over the Giants and he’s now back on the team’s active roster.
The Bucs officially made the move on Monday when they waived tight end Alan Cross to make room for Martin’s return. Martin will be eligible to practice with the team right away and can play against the Patriots in Thursday night’s game.
The story pointed out HC Dirk Koetter said the team would need to see how Martin practices before deciding how to use Martin. Rodgers carried 16 times for 83 yards against the Giants. Martin may not have a full role his first game back, especially when you consider it's a short week.
